It’s great to see so many spring migrants back. I checked out Little Lake at 1:30 p.m. today. Some of the migrants included 5 American Wigeon, 1 Redhead, 78 Ring-necked Duck, 57 Hooded Merganser, a Horned Grebe and 2 Merlin. They were all viewed from the point in Little Lake Cemetery. There were also at least 3 Iceland Gulls mixed in with the Herrings and Ring-billeds on the south shore of the lake. Abby and I went back in the evening at 6:00 p.m. Much of the same was there with the exception of a Cackling Goose off the east side of the point mixed in with a flock of Canada Geese.
